John McCain = asshole; Donald Rumsfeld = idiot

When I look at the metrics for this site, the who, what, and where my hits come from, one thing stands out above all others—the top two googled phrases that lead to my site are these: “John McCain is an asshole” and “Donald Rumsfeld is an idiot.”

Really. Far and away. Hardly a day goes by when I don’t see that someone found me by googling McCain’s asshole-dom or Rumsfeld’s idiocy. It cracks me up, but it also makes me feel like there is something in the zeitgeist—something that McCain, anyway, is going to have to work against in his run for asshole-in-chief.

But when googlers google, they don’t always get every reference on this blog. So, as a public service, let me aggregate some of the past examples.

First: John McCain, asshole.

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9


And second, Donald Rumsfeld, idiot.

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10


Now, since President Bush lied and played politics with the firing of Don of the Dead, we won’t have the Secretary of Fiasco to kick around anymore—but we still have that asshole John McCain.

In the span of one interview on Meet the Press, McCain managed to admit that he was completely wrong when he predicted a year ago that things would be substantially better in Iraq today, and then he used his newly-minted, straight-talking “credibility” to make a new prediction:

The question is, is what’s the solution? And I believe that a withdrawal or a date for withdrawal will lead to chaos in the region, and most military experts think the same thing. I believe that there are a lot of things that we can do to salvage this, but they all require the presence of additional troops.


I don’t know about which military “experts” McCain is talking to—most I’ve seen put it in writing advocate withdrawal, some slowly, some quickly—but one thing is for sure, he’s not talking to the American people. Only 8% of Americans advocate increasing the number of troops in Iraq. (Maybe the “straight talk express” should do a little less talking and a little more listening.)

And, since we won’t have Rumsfeld to act the idiot for us anymore, let us all thank our lucky stars that Joe Lieberman was able to convince enough Connecticut voters that he was for, as his TV ads said, bringing our troops home.

Appearing on the same Meet the Press as America’s foremost asshole, Backstabber Joe made sure to let us all know he is both a monumental idiot and a sanctimonious asshole, first by arguing that Tuesday’s election was not a big victory for his purported party:

The fact is that this was not a major realignment election in my opinion. This was the voters in Connecticut and elsewhere saying we are disappointed with the Republicans. We want to give the Democrats a chance. But I believe that the American people are considering both major political parties to be in a kind of probation because they’re understandably angry that Washington is dominated too much by partisan political games and not enough by problem solving and patriotism.


And then by mimicking McCain (and reneging on his campaign “promise”):

RUSSERT: Should we send more troops?

LIEBERMAN: I think we have to be open to that as a way to succeed, to achieve a free and independent Iraq, which would be an extraordinary accomplishment.


Extraordinary, indeed. . . some might even say impossible. . . but what do you say we all let McCain and Lieberman give it a try with the lives of thousands more Americans? After all, Americans are fed up with political games, right Joe? They want the kind of patriotism that can only be demonstrated with someone else’s blood.

I apologize for the scattershot nature of this, but I have to add: Did I not warn that one of the consequences of a Lieberman victory would be having to suffer through his regular self-promoting Sunday morning appearances? Sure enough, the touch-screens are barely cold from Tuesday, and Russert is back talking to the same two pretend mavericks we’ve had to endure for the last two, four, six years.

What will it take to get some of our new and/or true progressive Democrats on one of these shows? Well, let’s start by repeating this: Joe Lieberman is an idiot; Joe Lieberman is an asshole.

The people of Arizona must be nuts to keep electing this first class ASSHOLE! His father would turn over in his grave if he knew that his son was BRAINWASHED by the Communists in Viet Nam. He seems to get along well with LIE-berman, Kennedy, and other ASSHOLE liberals while portraying himself as a Conservative. He is a typical politician CROOK being involved with the Keating Savings & Loan fiasco which cost the US taxpayers millions in the Federal Reserve bailout. How the sheeple forget so quickly! The talking heads are lately talking him up as the propaganda machine says he has passed up Giuliani. Ron Paul is going to surprise all of these ASSHOLES!

I'm watching the preliminary votes being tallied up now on "Super Tuesday" and I just can't believe how many people are falling into the McCain trap the same way they did with Bush.
Don't people learn after the first time?!
AND THE SECOND?
Sometimes I feel like my vote doesn't even count because for every 1 logical person there's a group of 10 idiots behind him. (or her.)

I hope America doesn't vote for another asshole this year. I like Obama, and my second choice (reluctantly)is Hillary, but definitely no more warmongering destructive Republican Assholes.

Since I know that Hillary will be the next President of the United States of America, I know that Americans won't be voting for another asshole like Obama or McCain.

I find it comical that so many people who have accomplished little or nothing see it fit to call an experience politician who fought for your freedom an asshole.

This childish, misdirected anger would be comical if it was not so sad. Your hate for your existing President and the Republican party is blinding you.

hahaha absolutely awesome mate, i have jus finished watching no end in site and another few documentaries, and i just could not believe the statements coming from these peoples mouths, it was like a story, but its actually happening, and how its portrayed in the news as success? its a complete lie, its horrible to believe it goes on, but its no further from fact.then you have idiots like this saying 'I find it comical that so many people who have accomplished little or nothing see it fit to call an experience politician who fought for your freedom an asshole'
people who don't know history who only see with there eyes but don't use there brain, the truth is, Rumslfed didn't do any fighting , sure he was in the navy but he did no fighting, and McCain, the truth of the matter is he has seen war he and fought for your country, this does not mean a man is eligible to RUN your country, if you go around employing veterans of war all over your government then your going to have a very war based party. you would assume you need balance, balanced intelligence and vision at the top, in Ur defense state you would need people like veterans not people like rumsfeld who have never been to war! Mrs rice also in the wrong place, this is the major problem having non intellectual people or should i say miss placed intellectuals in the wrong places, for me a major shake up of recruitment for your parties is needed, ha! and who can change that! you people, not me i live in the u.k but i sure know if i was a U.S citizen i would be voting for Obama 200% , too think that some people even look at john McCain and a former miss world as his deputy and contemplate letting them run the country, WTF!!! its like a fucking dream! seriously! give it four years it will be Jim carry running for president with Brittany spears as his deputy. please don't be so fucking idiotic. The idiots that are blowing your money on war now has seen your country slide towards recession.but not only that it has made mine also and a number of European countries. you need to stop seeing this political image of freedom and democracy and liberal, the world doesn't work like that, just because you believe it to be a right way doesn't mean people want to live that way, and for certain people are not going to be forced.
